Great Informative shuttle to the glacier

Great narrative from Dave on the way to Mendenhall Glacier. Learned a lot about Juneau and its culture. Gave a lot of tips on what to see at the glacier. Dave was an excellent driver and we were fortunate to have him on our way back to the pier. Buses are clean and next time we go to Juneau I'll be sure to book this excursion again!

Shuttles never showed up. Sadly we’re never got to the glacier. Hoping that the company will give a refund. Information needs to be updated on a timely basis. Two days later and we get a notification that the we misse the tour

Frank was an amazing tour guide!! Efficient and prompt shuttle service straight to the glacier and trailheads. The ride there is also full of wildlife, which Frank helped us spot. This was a much better option than booking directly through our cruise line, and very easy to find.

Best guide (driver!) I learned a lot about the area and about some good bars and restaurants that were not in my guide book. I did the Nugget Falls and East Glacier hikes -- I highly recommend both.

Pleasant round-trip!

9/16/19 We found the the Shuttle Service personnel holding a Glacier Shuttle Service sign exactly as described. We waited approximately 15 mins. for the white bus to arrive. Our driver, Dave, was full of fun facts, stories and information about Juneau and Mendenhall Glacier which made our ride both fascinating and enjoyable. We were fortunate to have had Dave on our return trip. He gave us tips on where to shop "local" and wonderful places to eat and drink. Thanks to him, we enjoyed a dinner of the best fish and chips we ever tasted!

Pleasant and efficient way to get to Mendenhall Visitor Center and area hiking trails

I booked the Mendenhall Glacier shuttle service for our family of four so that we could easily access the Mendenhall Visitor Center and hiking trails during our recent visit to Juneau while on an Alaskan cruise. I'm not a fan of cruise-organized excursions and prefer to avoid the masses, (too)-slow execution, tedium, and higher prices of going through the cruise. This was easy to book via Viator and offered the benefit of cancellation (up to a day before I believe), should our plans have changed. The shuttle starts at 8 a.m. and runs throughout the day. Our two bus drivers were informative and enjoyable, and the short trip (20 mins?) went quickly. The shuttle let us off a short distance from the visitor center, which had a number of interesting displays, an informative movie, and live talks about the glacier from an on-site ranger. After viewing the visitor center (we probably spent the better part of an hour, but could have easily spent longer), we took advantage of some of the nearby trails and enjoyed some hiking. The shuttle met at an easy-to-find location under the Roberts' Tram. Depending upon where your ship docks, you may be very close (as was the mammoth RC Ovation of the Seas ship), or if like us on the RC Radiance of the Seas, it will be about a mile/mile and a half walk (or ship shuttle) to the tram meeting place. The walk was easy and pleasant so we opted for that rather than having to wait around for the ship shuttle (I think the ship shuttle was $5).

Don't bother

This had to be there most disorganized bus trip I've ever seen. It's just a bus ride to the glacier! But was late both times and the number of people crammed into the bus was unsafe and a bit unfair for those who paid full price. Just use one of the many your companies on the dock. Not Juneau Tours.
